ME and enterovirus

Dr. Hyde suggests that if the polio vaccine engineered decades ago had covered a few more enteroviral strains "M.E." would not exist
 
 
* * *
Pretty much what Dr. Bruno said, too -- the polio vaccine covers the top three strains, and ME is the #4 most-damaging one.

"Happy" ME/CFS Awareness Day

Once again, it's May 12, time to bang our heads against the wall trying to convince the world that CFS is not just depression or laziness.
 
Once again, it's May 12, time to cross off another year of living without a cure -- if you can call what we do "living" ... it's merely existing, taking up space, using oxygen, wishing that we could do something productive.
 
But this year there's some hope -- you can donate here Registration to fund mitochondrial research into CFS.  Mitochondrial dysfunction is why we're constantly tired.  They're finally looking into something useful instead of wasting research money on psychiatric explanations that do nothing to help us.
 
This is my 30th year of being sick.  I'd like to see 30 people donate in honor of my wasted life.  We are (of course) Team CFS.

A Biomarker for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS)? Immunosignature

 
"It suggested that some sort of core immune reaction was taking place in ME/CFS."

Sign the Petition to keep long-term care

 
Repealing the ACA and slashing Medicaid would leave millions of families unable to afford in-home care.

This plan will make it harder for millions of Americans to afford long-term care -- whether at home or in a nursing home -- and eliminate incentives to keep that care high-quality and community-based. It puts everyone who needs care at risk.
